Essentials for the cloche decor project

1. Setting the Base

First things first, grab a glass bowl and wood round.

Place the glass bowl upside down on the wood round without attaching it.

Applying glue around the glass bowl

2. Bead Embellishment

Surround the glass bowl with wood beads. I used a string of beads I found at the dollar store, it helps for quick and easy placement.
